Memo to Formula E. Check precise wording of 'Free To Air' on the TV deals...

Yes it technically is FTA, but if they were hoping for live race coverage on BBC One, Two or Four, looks like they are going to be disapointed.
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.

One race will be on one of the main BBC channels in 2019 (according to the official press release, though not mentioned by BBC Sport themselves).

There was a bit of finger trouble in the West Brom v Leeds match on Saturday, which briefly cut to the studio mid match. The lights were dimmed (possibly just house lights) but the match continued on the big screen behind the desk.


Also according to a thread on DS, there was a sound issue during the playing of the Last Post and what sounded like some fake crowd audio was played over it.

Apparently Sky are using canned atmos to avoid the Leeds crowd and their range of "colourful" chants.

Sky claim it's not a specific reaction to the classic "Sky TV, you're f.. s..." in protest to regular rescheduling of fixtures.
Write that down in your copybook now.
